What can you use instead of Styrofoam for cake pops?
Can’t find any styrofoam? Use a colander! Only some of the holes on mine fit the lollipop sticks, but it was a great solution for letting the cake pops dry.
What is the coating on cake pops?
Coating: You can use candy coating/candy melts, almond bark, or pure white chocolate. If using almond bark or pure white chocolate, chop it up before melting. Melt it down with 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil to thin out so it’s easier to use as a coating.
How much do cake pops cost 2020?
Cake pops will often sell at professional bakeries for anywhere from $1.50-$4 per pop. Price will depend on the cake, frosting, decorations, packaging, and preparation. A more elaborate cake pop, with fancy decorations and even a custom shape, will likely sell for $3 or more.
Why are my cake pops falling apart?
If your cake pops are not round enough, you either used not enough frosting (cake ball won’t stick together) or way too much! Remember to keep the consistency like play dough, so definitely not too dry, or too thin. What a bummer, your cake pops fall apart because it seems that you are not using enough frosting.
Can you freeze cake pops before decorating?
Cake pops freeze extremely well. If you’re worried about freezing them with their topping or icing, you can freeze them separately and decorate the cake pops when you’ve defrosted them. Because they can be topped with so many ingredients, you should double-check before you freeze them if the topping is freezer safe.
How do you store homemade cake pops?
The best way to store pre made cake pops is to place them in an airtight container with a paper towel lining the bottom of the container. Place the cake pops on top of the paper towel in a single layer then cover and store the cake pops in the fridge for five to seven days.
Do you have to refrigerate cake pops before dipping?
Refrigerate Before Dipping The freshly rolled cake pops should stay in the refrigerator for at least two hours before you dip them in melted almond bark or candy melts. This refrigeration time will ensure they are firm enough to keep their shape during the dipping and drying process.
How do you serve cake pops at a party?
If you’re displaying cake pops for a party, you can always keep it simple with a decorative platter. Position the dessert balls in a nice pattern and your arrangement is sure to look great! Placing them cake-down makes it easy for your guests to serve themselves by just grabbing the dessert from the stick end.
Can you melt store bought frosting for cake pops?
